Background. To ­describe anthro­po­met­ric and ­match per­for­mance pro­files of inter­na­tion­al Rugby Sevens ­players and ­explore cor­re­la­tions ­between anthro­po­met­ric char­ac­ter­is­tics and ­work-­rates in match­es.
Methods. Pro­files ­were com­pared by ­means of mul­ti­var­i­ate anal­y­sis and cor­re­la­tion tech­niques. Settings: meas­ure­ments ­were ­made on ­players par­tic­i­pat­ing in the 1996 International Rugby Sevens tour­na­ment in Uruguay. Subjects: Thirty ­male ­players. Measures: ­work-­rate anal­y­sis dur­ing match­es (n=30) and a com­pre­hen­sive anthro­pom­e­try pro­file of 27 of the 30 ­players.
Results. For­wards had ­more ­mass (­whole-­body, adi­pose tis­sue, mus­cle) ­than ­backs, ­jogged ­more fre­quent­ly and ­paused ­more ­often. High inten­sity activ­ity was neg­a­tive­ly cor­re­lat­ed ­with mus­cle ­mass and ­with mes­o­mor­phy.
Conclusions. Anthro­po­met­ric fea­tures are relat­ed to com­po­nents of ­match ­play in Rugby Sevens but do not nec­es­sar­i­ly deter­mine wheth­er a ­game is won or ­lost.
